As our time working in the Centre for Asia Minor Studies drew to a close, each of us began to reflect on our month of working in the archives. Each of our paths has led us to a different place, learning about a variety of topics and exploring different resources within the archive. From the archives themselves, to the plethora of books, images, and maps available, each of us have vast resources to learn from and use as we plan and write our papers.
As the program comes to an end, we would all like to thank the sponsors of the program, including the New York Life Insurance Company Center for the Study of Hellenism in Pontos and Asia Minor at Hellenic College/Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and the Dean C. and Zoe S. Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies at Stockton University. We would also like to thank Professor Tom Papademetriou of Stockton University and Professor Paschalis Kitromilides of the University of Athens, for their enthusiasm during the program and their guidance and support while we searched through the archives and dove into our research interests. It is an experience that we will all remember and hope to bring back to our own communities as well.
